New Hong Kong airline prepares 'cargo-first' pandemic Plan B

Greater Bay Airlines set to take delivery of first plane in mid-February

HONG KONG -- Hong Kong startup carrier Greater Bay Airlines is preparing a fallback plan to start with cargo services first in late summer if pandemic conditions make passenger flights infeasible.

"If the situation continues to be difficult, we will look at whether we can use our aircraft to fly more cargo operations to carry vaccines," Chief Executive Algernon Yau Ying-wah told Nikkei Asia in an interview this week. "We can use the aircraft for other purposes."
